Earlier today, Disney revealed that the list of upcoming movie releases has been drastically revised. The big news from their announcement is that Black Widow will be available not only in theaters, but on Disney + by extra fee, just like Mulan. Disney is also doing the same with Cruella, while some of their other moves include release date changes for Deep Water, Luca, Shang-Chi, Legend of the Ten Rings, and more. All this shows that while theatrical productions will return, no one is quite ready to embrace the model. Therefore, the hybrid model remains, at least for the time being.
Here are some of the report from diverse:
With going to the movies slowly starting to pick up in the United States, it seems that Hollywood studios are not yet ready to release their biggest-selling movies on the big screen.
All this means that Disney has drastically overhauled its upcoming roster and revised release plans for “Black Widow” and “Cruella” by Emma Stone, “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” and “Luca” by Pixar, and many others.
Notably, “Black Widow” and “Cruella” will now be showing their debut on Disney Plus at the same time they are opening in theaters. “Cruella” will arrive as scheduled on May 28, while “Black Widow” has been postponed for two months and will debut on July 9 instead of May 7. Both addresses will be shown on Premier Access, which comes with a $ 30 rental fee.
The “Black Widow” movement means Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” pre-set in early July, is back on September 3. It is expected to be released in traditional theatrical theaters.
Meanwhile, Pixar’s upcoming animated adventures “Luca” will not be shown in theaters and instead launch exclusively on Disney Plus, at no extra cost, on June 18th.
Despite the massive refocus on broadcasting, Disney isn’t planning to abandon theaters altogether. Several smaller titles have been postponed, mostly those inherited from the 20th century, but will only be on the big screen, including “The Free Man” (August 13), “The Man King” (December 22), and “Deep Water” (January 14, 2022) ) And “Death on the Nile” (February 11, 2022).
